30 days of writing, day 24 (killing characters)

24. How willing are you to kill your characters if the plot so demands it? What’s the most interesting way you’ve killed someone?
It depends on the character. Not terribly much for most.

I don't have that many deaths... *flips through stories* huh, more than I thought, but those are all "characters" made up on the spot for one single story, so I don't think of them as characters...

One guy had his throat ripped out by a child-size elf/fae with its really pointy teeth. One was eaten from the inside by an alien parasite (not described in any more detail than that).
Mostly when someone died, it happened before or after the story, or otherwise implied. That includes the one with a mad scientists skinning people alive as an attempt to remove their shadows; a dustbunny hero confronting a dragon, er, hoover; a shipwreck witnessed by the ghost of someone who died in an earlier one in the same area; Family Values.
